Item Description: E. P. Dutton & Company, New York, 1917. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very good. Pocket-sized (4.75 inches by 6.25 inches), 142, [2] Pages. Illustrations. Maps. Figures. Corners of some pages bumped. Cover has slight wear and soiling. The authors were Inspector Instructors in the U. S. Army Field Artillery. One of the authors rose to the rank of Major General in the United States Army. Dawson was Chief Signal Officer during the major portion of World War II, and presided over a momentous buildup of the Signal Corps. With a budget that grew from nine million in 1941, to more than five billion in 1943, Olmstead turned to both the Signal Corps laboratories and the private sector to meet the demands of total war. With the assistance of an advisory council of reserve officers and a civilian advisory board comprised of key figures in the communications industry, Olmstead brought the Signal Corps to wartime footing. Accomplishments included activating hundreds of Signal units and training thousands of officers and enlisted personnel in a reorganized Signal School. Olmstead's illustrious career blossomed in the 1920s and flourished during the depression years of the 1930s. However, it was during World War II that Olmstead's talent and vision won him the Distinguished Service Medal. His colleague may have been the John Hammond who also rose to the rank of General and became the owner of the New York Rangers. This publication was intended to assist candidates taking the Field Artillery Gunners' Examination. It is indicative of the state of knowledge and perspective as the United States entered the First World War. This handbook has been prepared for use in the instruction of candidates for rating as gunners under the provisions of Special Regulations No. 53, War Department, dated May 7, 1917. In this order specific requirements are laid down for the examination and classification of gunners of Field Artillery from all types of gun and howitzer batteries used in the service and from candidates from headquarters and supply companies and Battery Commanders' details. In as much as the 3-inch gun battery is the standard type, the instruction as to materiel covered by this handbook has reference to the service of this piece. Presumed First Edition, First printing thus. Bookseller Inventory # 73197

Item Description: J.B. Lippincott & Co., Philadelphia, 1860. Cloth. Book Condition: Very Good +. 1st Edition. AN EXCEPTIONALLY RARE CIVIL WAR BOOK. FOUND ON A SOUTHERN CIVIL WAR BATTLEFIELD BY A DRUMMER BOY OF THE 79TH NEW YORK DURING THE SEIGE OF PORT ROYAL DECEMBER 6TH 1861. ORIGINAL OWNER CONFEDERATE OFFICER OF THE FIRST SOUTH CAROLINA MILITIA. Brown cloth with blind stamp design to the boards.Title in gilt on the spine.Head and tail caps expertly repaired. Previous owner's signatures to the front pastedown and front fly lesf.Half-Title. Eighty-Eight plates.The provenance of the book tells a historical tale that is unrivaled and worthy of a museum. Found in the front is an inscription by John G. Barnwell, Jr., who served in the 1st South Carolina Confederate Troops with McCreary's Regt, and in the rear is three signatures and an amazing notation by a young, nearly illiterate drummer/musician from the 79th NY, Theodore Van Velsor, who was only 19 at the time. Van Velsor notes 'drummer' nest to his name on one leaf, and the final leaf contains an amazing notation, stating, in broken English and hard to read handwriting, 'Theodore Van Velsor Picked Upe(up) on the ba-tle feld(battlefield) (undecipherable word) onn(on) decemder 6 1861(December 6th, 1861) at port rayol(at Port Royal) soth caline(South Carolina)- 79 regment(79th Regiment)' . This tells a great story, as research indicates Barnwell was involved in evacuating his family during the Port Royal seige, and more than likely dropped this book in the process, where it found its way to a young Brooklyn NY musicians hands. The book is tight and square and is in excellent condition. An amazing piece of Civil War History. Size: 6.0" x 8.0" Language: eng. Bookseller Inventory # 010555
